uuid oddity?

I'm running Ubuntu server 8.04 and just added a 500GB SATA drive that I
pulled from my Ubuntu box that died :(
But the new machine is much nicer :)

I did fdisk the drive again in the new machine and built an ext3 filesystem
on it.

A reboot doesn't automagically mount it, so I ran blkid to get the UUID so I
could make the necessary adjustment to fstab.

/dev/sdc1: LABEL="/usr3" UUID="4c3451b0-3dfc-4119-8da3-775a3f78b5a9"
TYPE="ext3" SEC_TYPE="ext2"

None of the existing drives have this "SEC_TYPE" (secondary type?) in their

Can anyone tell me what this is? I can't seem to find anything in the man
pages that describes this, and google hasn't helped me uncover this yet.

Thanks as always for the input.
